WrestleMania 36: WWE fans will witness history this weekend as WrestleMania will not only go down over the course of two nights but also be broadcast without fans. The WWE is continuing to shoot their shows from their Performance Center in Orlando, Florida due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This weekend’s matches are stacked including The Main Event featuring Goldberg against Braun Strowman, due to Roman Reigns being out of this match which seems like a last-minute decision from Roman, himself. A few other WWE Superstars that you’ll see this weekend are Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre, Edge vs. Randy Orton, and Becky Lynch vs. Shayna Baszler.

Thankfully, WWE has done a tremendous job of making sure spoilers about this year’s Show of Shows didn’t leak, which allowed the event to maintain its usual intrigue.
WrestleMania 36 will begin with the pre-show at 6 p.m. ET on both Saturday and Sunday. The main action begins at 7 p.m. ET. WWE hasn’t announce which matches are going to occur each night.
Let’s check out the complete card along with picks for who will pick up the high-profile victories. That’s followed by a closer look at some of the most interesting matchups on the Mania slate.
WWE received significant backlash for allowing Wyatt to drop the Universal Championship to Goldberg at Super ShowDown in February. This match should provide fans with some sense of payback.
The Fiend isn’t an in-ring worker on the level of Edge, Orton, Zayn or Bryan. He’s at his best when he can tell a story with his great character performances, and letting him take on a legend in Cena in his own Firefly Fun House is the perfect opportunity.
Wyatt will be able to use his antics and the environment to highlight what makes him different than any other Superstar on the roster.
Meanwhile, Cena has entered a new phase of his career. As he’s become more involved in acting, his WWE schedule has become greatly reduced. But his returns always ensure additional eyeballs on the product, and it’s helped build hype for this encounter.
It’d be a shock if Wyatt doesn’t pick up the win, but the lack of doubt surrounding the result shouldn’t take away from a match that will greatly benefit from taking place outside the ring.
